What is it?

Buddy Up Tennis, the nationally recognized ongoing adaptive tennis and fitness program for individuals with Down syndrome.  'Athletes' with Down syndrome will be partnered with volunteer 'Buddies' for 90 minutes of tennis, fitness, and FUN led by professional tennis coaches.


The Buddy Up Tennis Training and Education Team from Columbus, Ohio trained Teaching Professionals from Green Bay Tennis Center, and Buddies from the community, in the proven adaptive tennis and fitness curriculum.  Volunteers ages 14+ are trained to be Buddies.  Athletes with Down syndrome ages 5+ are encouraged to join the fun, receive a team t-shirt, and tennis racquet upon registration.  


Buddy Up Tennis exists to serve individuals with Down syndrome by providing a fun, active, and supportive environment for Athletes to grow both physically and personally by engaging in activities that impact athletic, social, and emotional development.
